The 5th of June once again was the first Thursday of the month – thus, the vienniese Palm User Group met in the Pizza Plus pizzeria in the outer districts of Vienna. We chose this location once again after meeting in the Salzberg for a few times as the food is better and the staff is friendlier – the free WiFi no longer is an issue now that almost everyone of us has GPRS internet.

I arrived a bit late – and found the user group assembled around the table where we usually sit:

The Nokia N71 was passed around and examined – the main point of critique was that the lid couldn’t be opened with just one hand:

Apparently, photographing a Nokia device next to a Palm device isn’t too popular among Palm users – my attempts were sabotaged all the time(=|):

Our Treo modder improved his Treo 650 even more by adding bands of tissue to its back. These bands allow you to type on the Treo while it lays on a table without the machine toppling over; it additionally improves grip:

His wife’s Tungsten C wasn’t safe either – it got a MiniUSB jack for charging and syncing, and also received a reset hole that can be operated with the stylus tip:

A 8GB memory card was available, too – but my Palm TX wasn’t too impressed with it(no reaction):

Last but not least, a few gadgets(including a GPS mouse) were available “for sale” – more on that GPS mouse soon!

Overall, I definitely enjoyed staying at the Palm User Group, and will be there again in September! What about sending us a meeting report from your PUG?

  1. ouch, if that treo could talk… it hurt my eyes… a lot.

  2. Maybe I should be taking bets on when the first IPhone arrives at a PUG Vienna meeting? Better still bets on when the first Folio arrives in Vienna?

    Who is the secretary at those meetings? Will Vienna have a website or TamsPalm is the defacto website for this group?

    One final note, how do you get such good closeups?

  3. Hi,
    as for the Treo, I actually do like the blue color. The closeup essentially was a luck shot, the basic idea behind them is to make the “bulb” of the camera’s flash point ABOVE the object.

    As for the secretary, it is Alex. He has a web site for the PUG; but it usually is offline =| – so trust TamsPalm and you’ll be on the safe side!

    As for the bets: no idea…

    Best regards

  4. Btw: the PUG-Site isn’t offline ;) see

    And I think we will have an iPhone (when it is released in europe) ;)

  5. Hi,
    looking forward to the iPhone and the next meeting in September!

    Best regards
